Like walking into a Mexican abuela’s casa in Guadalajara, the brightly lit, inviting space at Chihuahua is colorful without being obnoxious and homey without feeling contrived. Pastel yellow and teal are warmed by the daylight streaming through the Southern-facing casement windows, making the entire venue welcoming for some afternoon productivity. The seating includes counter space for six people, something you would commonly find in Mexican food market where produce shoppers can saddle up for a mid-day bocadillo along with a frosted cup of agua fresca.
Chihuahua fills a culinary gap in the Shanghai food scene for true Mexican street food at everyday prices. With many of the recipes coming from co-owner Estef Casas’ (previously of El Santo and El Luchador) grandma, the dishes are rustically wholesome. Although the menu warns that ‘these are not pretty tacos; they are real tacos’ we disagree and find beauty in how genuinely delicious they are.
